2 years ago, backstage for Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, I bumped into Bill Murray. I was armed with a recorder because I just had words with an unnamed musician. Must have spoken with 30 or 40 in those 3 days. He agreed because he liked our mascot on my t-shirt. We did a short and sweet, on the fly interview. We discussed his new film “CITY OF EMBER,” Fantastic Fest, Austin & Jim Jarmush while the tape rolled. At the time, rumors were around about a third Ghostbusters film… He told me about his 1st visit to Austin with “Danny Ackroid” way back when. I dropped the question and he told me that he was in for the ride but that no script had been finalized. I let it go and we then talked about my favorite film of his “RAZORS EDGE.”
A very cool guy. Really awesome that he made time for me. Things just seem to work out in this town.
I am excited that a script has been made. Ramis is in, Ackroid and Murray are in. Moranis? Anyone heard of Rick Moranis in awhile?
